The Poet


The Poet . . . ( Referencing Moonglow, )

Novels, novellas, writers of documents and manuscripts,
Bred of grace and order,

What makes a 'Fellow-of-Letters' construct for the mind that which the eye
Can never see?

New passive resident in moments of ancient breathing, held down, bound tightly
In this ethereal, far dimension,

Forged in the common-ceremony of, 'Feather and Parchment',
My nimble fingers probe each new unfolding leaf.

And with more than subtle indifference I do now advance
Myself In the Far Echos and the Long Art.

Thom Douglas Carlisle's picture

I am an Irish Poet who moved from America to Ireland back in 2007. I now have my Irish citizenship. All of my "Moran" ancestry are at rest in an ancient catholic cemetery located outside the townland ( rural, ) of "Drumgowla - up in the Irish hills, in the border counties. I continue my work here., Thom Douglas Carlisle ( Irish Tommy Moran )
